Route protection for four-tracking and a walking and cycling path

Over the next 30 years, it is expected that an extra 130,000 people will call southern Auckland home. KiwiRail is already building a third line on the busiest part of the network, but to keep up with demand and allow more frequent journeys, KiwiRail wants to extend the third track and build a fourth.

Auckland Transport is also preparing for future demand and proposing the development of a walking and cycling path in the vicinity of the rail corridor between Drury and Pukekohe.

To prepare for this development, KiwiRail and Auckland Transport are proposing to protect the land that will be needed in the future.

Public consultation on route protection to enable the future four-tracking of the rail corridor and a walking and cycling path to be built is open until Sunday 21 April 2024. You can find out more about these proposals and provide feedback here.
